Recommended for Pinot Gris, Riesling, Grenache, Rose, Carignane & Fruit Wines.
- Known for fermenting fruity ros√© wines and semi-sweet whites because it produces long-lived aromas that result from the synthesis of relatively stable esters and higher alcohols.
- Softens high acid musts by partially metabolizing malic acid.
- Sensitive to competitive factors and may have difficulty competing with wild flora. Careful rehydration with¬†Go-Ferm or Go-Ferm Protect and early inoculation will help Lalvin 71B¬†dominate in competitive conditions.
- Also good for cider.
